Forget about catching touchdown passes  this Super Bowl was all about catching grenades! If you ask us, the big highlight of this year's NFL championship game had nothing to do with football but was all about Bruno Mars's thrilling halftime show. So here's the full performance, complete with an appearance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers!

It may not have been quite as explosive as last year's Beyonce halftime show — which involved a major power outage — but Bruno definitely knocked his performance out of the park. He performed with a ton of energy, and we loved his gold costumes! Sadly, he didn't perform "Grenade," but we suppose we can forgive him for that.

Bruno's set list consisted of "Locked Out of Heaven," "Treasure," "Runaway Baby," and "Just the Way You Are." The last song featured dedications by military personnel. In addition, Bruno was introduced by a children's choir singing the chorus to the Travie McCoy song, "Billionaire," which Bruno wrote and sings the chorus on.

And that wasn't all! Red Hot Chili Peppers also made a (largely shirtless) appearance, in which they performed their early '90s classic, "Give It Away."
